As i see it, it can be lost, it can be seized, its traceable, and its highly volatile. These things are significant...
One of the valuable qualities of Bitcoin is that it is traceable. The whole argument it is used by nefarious groups to be untraceable has always been a garbage argument. It was stated in a few articles the most likely way the FBI retrieved the ransom was by breaking into the organizations servers and getting the passwords. Essentially sloppy IT skills and going up against one of the most powerful governments in the world. If you keep your password private, it can't be taken, there isn't an avenue for that to be possible.

Nothing new under the sun. Cocky, know-it-all youngster thinks he knows better than his dad. This douche uses money his dad gave him to go all-in on bitcoin, publicly announces it (making his father look bad)... and then, 3 months later, bitcoin is down 50% lol. I don't think bringing up this factoid does you or your cause any justice.

As all Prodigal Sons do, this sack of chit will return home with his tail between his legs.... and will get a bail-out in the form of a dynastic inheritance that his father built on gold and silver.
I said it has little meaning except it's ironic that it is his own son.

If that's true, it's kind of ironic. They got money due to shitty InfoSec, and lost it due to shitty InfoSec.
